Hey folks - I wanted to have a personal blog on devWorks as a hub for collateral, commentary, links to interesting stuff, so i could find it all in one place.
The first few posts are a bit of a cheat - the ones that begin with 'Playing catchup' as the content already exists 'out there' already, but some of the posts relate to, or follow on from the earlier posts, so convenient to have around for context.
Check this out - I love this guys style of delivery and the content is top notch...
This is a top gaming podcast - but certainly not for the faint of heart - or younger listeners.
An intelligent, engaging and often sophisticated conversation on gaming from all manner of perspectives.
A couple of episodes really stand out for me. The first is the crusade by one man to almost single handedly save a hugely significant portion of American gaming history. Its a great piece and lays out the story of a man who invests in vintage pinball and then opens up an arcade/museum for anyone and everyone to enjoy.
The second is the exploration of what happens when an online game world ends. Something that I hadnt really considered was that, aside from the gaming element - online gaming offers the ability to communicate and potentially strike up friendships with people from all over the world. Definitely worth a listen.
